Google is Retiring the Google My Business (GMB) App

In 2021, Google updated Google My Business, allowing users to manage their business profile exclusively through Maps and Search. The switch made it easier for businesses to update information directly from different apps or devices. Overall, the reception was positive and gave users more flexibility in managing their business profiles.

Out with the GMB App, In with the Map App

Google has announced that it is retiring the GMB app and redirecting mobile users to manage their business profiles through the Maps app. Businesses will also use Google Search to manage their business profile.

The good news is that the transition will not affect how people interact with a Google Business Profile. It will only improve the way business owners access their GMB accounts from any desktop or mobile device. Larger businesses still get full support from the Google Business Profile Manager.

Features and Benefits of the Google Map GMB App

The new Google Map App offers several features and benefits, including

  • Claim and verify your Business Profile without leaving the app.
  • Edit information about your business, including business address, contact information, and main & holiday business hours.
  • Add photos, post updates, and share announcements.
  • Receive messages and chat with customers in real-time.
  • Get notifications when you receive a new message or review about your business.
  • Solicit and reply to reviews from customers.
  • Promote your business to customers with offers and ads.
  • Receive updates to understand how your business is doing on Google.

To get started, sign in to the Google Maps app, or download it from Google Play or the App Store.
